Use Proven Success Principles

By: Ken Brown
Published: 4/25/2024

Study successful men and women and do what they do, and you will be successful, too.

Use Proven Success Principles for authors and you will be successful, too.

I was listening to my old cassette tape of Brian Tracy as he talks about the Psychology of Success. In this tape, he was talking about taking the actions of successful people and imitating their success habits. After listening to the tape several times (BTW, I listen on my phone, not on the old cassettes, though I still have them) I realized that I'm not taking his advice. I'm not taking the steps that successful authors take to market their books.

Brian says, "Use proven success methods. Don't try to re-invent the wheel."

Guess what, I'm just floundering in still water, because I don't have a large marketing budget and I'm not too keen on giving the mega-rich owners of Facebook and Amazon my small amount of marketing cash. They have enough money, they don't need mine.

Sources of Story Inspiration for this Author.

You might wonder where authors get inspiration for their books. That's a great question. I can't answer for all authors, but what works for me is to expose myself to as many experiences as possible.

When I'm walking in the woods, I get ideas for a scene. At a birthday party, I might observe the interaction between family members. Is there tension between a child and his parents or between two siblings? Why?

Kobo Promotion

Woohoo! I Scored a Kobo Promotion.

Woohoo! I Scored a Kobo Promotion.

The most exciting news this year is I scored a Kobo Promotion that is due to begin running on August 8th, 2022 for a week. Woohoo! This is a 40% off sale of the book on Kobo only. The book will be listed at its regular price of $4.99 and then will be discounted 40% on checkout. This promotion is what gets wide authors excited.

What is a Wide Author?
There are two types of authors. An author can be wide or exclusive to Amazon. An Amazon exclusive author has locked in all their sales to Amazon. They list their books on Kindle Unlimited (KDP) and are paid for page reads and readers can also buy their books. Wide authors are authors who have chosen not to be locked in to receiving ALL their revenue and sales from one book distributor, Amazon. They have chosen to sell their books on Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Direct to readers, Apple Books, Google Books and a myriad other possible distribution outlets.

Which is the best choice, wide or exclusive?
